In a very touching gesture, PM Modi presented VP Harris a copy of old notifications related to her grandfather, PV Gopalan in a wooden handicraft frame.
PV Gopalan was a senior and respected government official who served in various positions. PM Modi also gifted VP Harris a Gulabi Meenakari Chess Set.
The excite craft of Gulabi Meenakari is closely associated with Kashi, one of the oldest cities in the world. It is also the constituency of Prime Minister Modi. Each piece on this particular chess set is remarkably handcrafted. The bright colours reflect the vibrancy of Kashi.
Australian PM Scott Morrison was gifted a Silver Gulabi Meenakari Ship. This ship is also distinctly handcrafted and bright, reflecting eternal Kashi’s dynamism.
The PM of Japan, Yoshihide Suga was gifted a Sandalwood Buddha Statue. Buddhism plays a big role in bringing India and Japan together.
The thoughts and ideals of Lord Buddha reverberate far and wide in Japan. During his previous visits to Japan, PM Modi visited Buddhist temples as well.
